Overnight Tuna Trip

Had the pleasure of taking Brooks Forsyth on his last fishing trip as a single man. He had a great crew with him and they wanted Tuna no matter how far the run. We left the dock around 1:00 pm and made our way south, WAY SOUTH!. Small live bait was difficult to come by out there but between the jigs and chunking we were able to put together a good box of fish consisting of 7 Yellowfins, 16 of the biggest blackfin of the trip, 3 Mahi Mahi and 2 nice Almocos (see Josh, I haven't forgot about you). The Yellows were finicky and on the small side with 4 of them just legal, a 40 pounder, and a 30 pounder. We did manage one real nice fish that weighed 155lbs. What a great first tuna especially for the summertime. I want to thank the crew for making it a great trip even with the ridiculously long ride. Also Capt. Ryan Perry, enjoyed the company. Let me know when you are headed back offshore.

I see that you thought about me! Looks like you must have been paying attention the last time that we fished together, you were able to catch a nice pile of fish!! Well - maybe you didnt watch close enough though because Aaron and I always catch bait! ha ha! (nice CFL dawg!!)

I am proud of your catch! I hope one day to be able to catch fish of my own , we cant let you have all of the fun!

Keep up the good work ! The 'Gray Goose' is keeping the action going!
Did yall catch that slob chunkin? Chunkin blackfins or what? We have been getting the typical summer yellows in the 40-90 lb range on blackfin chunks but the slobs have eluded us. Well we did get spooled on an 80W, had about a hundred feet of line on the reel left when we locked the drag and the hook pulled. Took FOREVER to reel all that slack in. I'm thinking it was a bluefin.

Actually it was caught on a jig.
